With $33.6 Billion Cash, If GM Can’t Tell the Truth They Can Give Us Our Money Back

John, if not for the fact that half of the Obama reelection platform was based on GM being "alive" I would tell you to stop writing about the Volt. No one could possibly think this is anything close to a success and your efforts might be more fruitful elsewhere. Oh wait, there is that large group of freethinkers (i..e. liberals) who freely take only the facts relevant to their worldview who require daily reminders that the facts contradict that view. Please proceed good sir....

I really don't think they ought to be using that campaign slogan anymore "Osama is Dead and GM is alive." The Muslims didn't like it and now they are over there saying Death to Obama and Death to America. It just isn't funny.

mlester, I agree. We (a number of Delphi Salaried Retirees) had a protest rally held in Dayton Ohio last wednesday, where Joe Biden spoke at a local university, Wright State University. The one sign that I carried outside on the sidewalk was "GM is Alive??? Delphi Pensions are DEAD! Is YOUR pension next?" Our local news showed my sign for about 1 second and then covered dear ol' Joe's stump speech. The strange thing is, it was reported that when Biden opened his mouth, he said I am glad to be at WAYNE State today. Someone corrected him and I'll be darned if he didn't call "Wright" State as "WAYNE State" again for the second time! This fool don't even know what universe he's in, let alone knowing what is going to come out of his rac ist lips

It also appears that Osama is alive (in spirit) and GM is dead (in fact).

It would be interesting to learn how many, of all Chevy Volts sold, were purchased by the federal government. I suspect that the percentage is greater than 50%.

The Dept of Defense has been buying a considerable number of them. The military is so fixated on making showy "green" decisions; it unbelievably aggravates me. The last installation we were stationed at, the soldier support center reserved the front rows in the parking lot for "hybrid, electric or compact cars." The spaces were no smaller than than the rest of the spaces. I parked my minivan there. ;)

Patton's 3rd Army keep running out of gas in France in 1944-45. The US military will be disabled on any non-sunny day in Obama's vision to disable America.

Over the weekend General Motors fought back against critics who have been all over the company after published reports say that the government-subsidized car company is spending as much as $90,000 to produce the “breakthrough” electric car, the Chevy Volt. The Volt retails for only $40,000.

Although the company refused to release figures regarding Volt production costs, UPI quotes the company as saying that critics have "allocated product development costs across the number of Volts sold instead of allocating across the lifetime of the program, which is how business operates."

The UPI whines that the Volt has become a...
